The GRG170DXL is a left-handed RG series solid body electric guitar model introduced by Ibanez in 2004. It is part of the entry-level GIO line.

The GRG170DXL features Ibanez pickups, a synchronized tremolo bridge and a bound fingerboard with sharktooth inlays. It is produced simultaneously in China and Indonesia for different markets around the world.

For 2018 the fretboard material was changed from rosewood to treated New Zealand pine for markets outside of Europe. The rosewood fretboard on the European version was changed to jatoba in late 2018. For 2019 the body wood species was switched to poplar, the FAT-10 tremolo was replaced with the T102 and the fretboard was switched to treated New Zealand pine in all markets.

The GRG170DX is a right-handed version.
